Stop trivializing the crusade against Galamsey in the country - Amoah

Member of Parliament for the Nhyiaeso, Dr. Stephen Amoah, has criticized the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) for trivializing the means government is using to combat the canker of illegal small-scale mining(galamsey) in the country.

He said reducing the crusade against galamsey to trivial debates by the opposition party members shrouds the fight in doubt which will end up defeating the purpose of the fight against illegal small-scale mining.

Dr. Amoah made this pronouncement in an interview with Berla Mundi on the New Day show on TV3, Friday, May 28.

He was reacting to the allegation made by Mr. Abraham Amaliba of the NDC that President Akufo-Addo’s fight against galamsey is based on selective justice. And that the only reason Kate Gyamfua, the National Women’s Organizer of the ruling NPP was burnt is because she criticized the Road and Highway Minister Kwasi Amoako-Atta for only fixing roads in his constituency to the neglect of others in the Eastern Region.

 “I am not saying that bigwigs are not part, I’m not a legal practitioner, I’m a finance person, my brother(Amaliba) is a lawyer but look at the way he is analyzing this misconception and deception that Kate Gyamfua has issue with the Road Minister. Is the Road minister in charge of mines or whatever? Is he the President? Let’s take things seriously because these are the allegations people make and I also make some and you say: oh Stika take it easy, because you can’t come and sit here and make arbitrary statements” he charged.
